“The trouble with unemployment is that the minute you wake up in the morning you’re on the job”. — Slappy White

Job search is the job you have when you are between jobs. Like any other jobs,

  1. It needs to be a full time effort (30-40 hours a week consistently) if you want to achieve any level of success quickly.
  2. It requires a certain set of skills that are developed over time. No one is born good at this, but anyone can learn to master it.
  3. You need to make yourself accountable, since you are also your own boss in this “job.” Consider getting a “boss buddy” (a topic of a future post)
  4. The skills you build are as important as the result you achieve, because the result you achieve (finding a job) is only helpful to this effort, but the skills you learn for job search can help you a life time.

What can you do to fill up 30-40 hours a week consistently you may ask? Well, check out the Job Search Checklist. Good Luck out there!
